Home for the holidays: My favourite moments in Paris

I just got back from spending the holidays back home with my family in France. It was a few jam-packed days of catch-up time with family, complete with some good eats and visits of some of the neighbourhoods I miss the most when I’m away. Take a peek at some of my favourite moments in Paris! I’m now back in Toronto, looking out onto a snow-kissed city, completely and utterly jet-lagged!

    Thank you for sharing these pictures. Is there a more beautiful place on earth than Paris…
    It must have been a wonderful vacation and reunion with your family. Hope you get some rest now. : )

      They were so good! I got a pistachio, a salted caramel and an orange one and just couldn’t bare to share. So good! Have a happy new year too, Mardi — can’t wait to hear about your Australian adventures!

    What a wonderful holiday! (Does that mean you missed the Toronto ice storm?) Your pictures all look terrific, but that beef carpaccio salad really made my mouth water.

      I did (I was very lucky!). The carpaccio was absolutely delicious — I could go for another bite right this second!
